decided to make a larger drawing, should help some of the confusion.
Hey Telgar. My DT is a 90 reef ready with two holes drilled in the corner. Should I follow this plumbing sketch as well? My corner overflow kit is 1 1/2" inline with 3/4 " return. I'm trying to get a parts list together. From what I've read the return should match my 3/4", correct? I'm not sure what size pvc should be going to fuge as well as everything above the sump/fuge. :-/ Also since the return and inline holes are so close, would I have 2 seperate plumbing or tie them together? Should the return just be flexhose straight from return pump to the corner overflow? I was also going to use Oatey Rain or shine blue glue with Oatey Purple primer. If any one would like to chime in feel free to. Thanks.
Hi, Can't believe I missed this thread! Nice progress. I made a sump a while ago here's the thread :http://www.3reef.com/forums/i-made/sump-build-just-like-christmas-91999.html
As far as the PVC cement and primer go,This is the stuff. It's pretty cheap and works well. I'm going to be doing my new plumbing soon.
Not sure what you mean with the flex-hose for the plumbing? maybe a pic would help?
Thanks, yeah I picked up that PVC cement package deal at home depot this weekend. I've seen people use PVC or the clear soft plastic hose for the return. Just cant decide on which to go with. Nice thread by the way.
Thanks, I'm planning on updating it soon. (It's Been forever!! lol)
I would use rigid PVC pipe for the return unless it would mean a ton of elbows to get it where you want to go. In that case, use the flex-hose all the way.
Also, don't know if you already knew this but make sure not to glue all pieces of PVC together. You are gonna want to leave some unglued to move them for adjustments, cleaning, etc.
Once I come up with my game plan, let me know what to glue and what not to glue. My build thread should start late next week.
I'll look out for it
P.s. how did things finally pan out with your 360?
I bought him a new one.
Cool. The new ones look really nice.
